Peterhead 3-1 Stirling Albion

Rory McAllister hit a hat-trick as Peterhead defeated 10-man Stirling to go top.

The first, a delicately lobbed finish arrived after four minutes, then Andrew Rodgers found McAllister and he thumped the ball home.

Stirling reduced the deficit 10 minutes into the second half when Ross Forsyth fired in.

McAllister's penalty secured the points after Rodgers had been hacked down by Luca Gasparotto, who was sent off.
